NovelSat Unveils Satellite Broadcast/Multicast Solution

News Image
NovelSat has unveiled a comprehensive satellite broadcast/multicast solution for the delivery of live TV and OTT video services.

The satellite-to-mobile video solution now enables mobile service providers to roll out TV and video services on a large scale while optimizing network investment.

As mobile video dominates mobile data traffic, a mobile service provider using a hybrid satellite-terrestrial network can now keep pace with traffic growth while introducing new video services such as live TV channel bundles. Complementing existing backhaul links with a satellite broadcast overlay enables service providers to leverage 4G infrastructure while evolving to 5G networks and services. The broadcast overlay network delivers new levels of video quality and volume for OTT distribution to remote cache storage and for live TV streaming, thus offloading broadband backhaul connections.

The NovelSat satellite-to-mobile video solution incorporates all core-to-edge video delivery functionalities including high-efficiency multi-stream, multi-profile video encoding/decoding, multi-channel video transcoding, multi-profile video packaging, high-efficiency satellite modulation/demodulation, the highest level of content security and protection, content entitlement and scheduling tools, resource management and optimization and more.

The comprehensive solution comprises a Video Core, a Video Edge Gateway, a Video Manager and a Network Management System. Utilizing software-based modules, the solution is highly scalable and enables large-scale deployment of ample bandwidth to numerous cell sites and locations.

"Users now want to consume video when they want it, where they need it, in the device of their preference, and they expect live TV and video with the consistency and quality they experience at home. As general viewing habits continue to favor linear video consumption, live streaming will be the fastest growing component in IP traffic," said Lluc Palerm, senior analyst at NSR – Northern Sky Research. "Satellite has a unique set of attributes that make it ideal for many use cases and NSR expects demand for hybrid satellite-terrestrial video delivery networks to take off circa 2020."
